New York.
Completely unaffordable but you should definitely live there while you're young and it won't bother you to continue to live like a student (small spaces, roommates) for a while longer.
Definitely scores high for job opportunities and young population.

NYC, D.C. Boston, Chicago, L.A., SF, SD, ATL............all are sizeable cities that have a lot of young people. All different places and some very expensive. But if you are looking for a lot of young people in decent sized cities...these would be some.

I don't know that D.C. would be a city with a ton of young people. I've been there and it was much more of a mature city than a city filled with young people.

Some cities that I'd consider to be good for those to start out in:

Austin, TX
Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN
Denver, CO
San Francisco, CA
Portland, OR
